The same man John Friel was a great runner too. One time the Earl of Leitrim offered a High - land ram to any of his tenants who kept sheep. John Friel and my grandfather went to get one each. There was a very good ram amongst the others and John asked the Steward to give him this one. The Steward told him he could not because this was Lord Leitrim's own choice to put along with his own sheep. John said, "If I can catch him in a race can I get him?" "Yes, I will give him to you surely said the Steward for he was sure John couldn't catch him. John ran round the field three times after the ram, (it was a mile round) and on the fourth time caught him and won him.
